Wine Business Monthly Announces 2017's Top Leaders in December Issue

The full list of leaders is now available online
by Press Release
December 05, 2017

A leader is someone who makes an impact or shapes how people act or how things occur—an agent of change. Making and selling wine is a multi-faceted endeavor led by those brave enough (or crazy enough) to pave a new way forward, inspiring generations to come. Some of the leaders on this list have discovered new ways of doing things: inventing new ways of marketing, tapping into trends and building brands, and sometimes defining what it means to be an entrepreneur in the wine industry. Others have developed a specific expertise, have found niches or rallied behind causes they believed in. Some of the influential people on this list are known to virtually anyone who follows the wine industry while others are influential yet fly "under the radar." All of them are leaders in the North American wine business.

When Wine Business Monthly created this list, we wanted to acknowledge the multitude of leaders shaping the industry today. We have a general list of leaders as well as four trend-based category lists: Data, Mergers & Acquisitions, Labor and Retailers—these are the areas that have made a considerable impact on the wine industry in 2017.
